This was a very solid thriller from the much missed leisure publishers. Ed Gorman's writing style reminds me a lot of Richard Laymon sans T&A and horny teens and all that other gloriously Laymon trademarks, the writing style itself though, the sparseness of the prose, the pacing, very easy and quick and accesible read.

This was the first book I've read by Ed Gorman. It was pretty good. It seemed a tad long for its subject matter, but the last 50 or so pages are very suspenseful.
